Nightshift Brewing Day of Darkling Details
(Everett, MA) – We’re almost ready to celebrate our barrel-aged imperial stout, but we have a few more tricks up our sleeves for the day!
First – Darkling merch. We ordered special edition Darkling glasses and t-shirts so that you can take your love of the darkness wherever you go. Glasses are $8, or $4 with a Darkling pour, and shirts are $20.
Next, we’ll be tapping two special, one-of-a-kind kegs during the day on Friday. Keep these deets on the down-low, because we haven’t announced them to the public yet. Here’s the plan: at 2pm we’ll tap one keg of Vanilla Darkling, then at 4pm our only keg of Coconut Darkling goes on. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
To create Darkling 2017 we filled both bourbon and rye whiskey barrels with our imperial stout, then set them away to age. Once the barrels had imparted their oak character, we blended them and prepared some special treats.
The day will begin with a special to-go sale from 9am-11am. During these hours, Darkling bottles and all other packaged beer will be available. We will not be pouring draft beer during these hours. At 11am, the bar will open, and the party is on!
Three bottled offerings will be available (on draft as well). Bottles are $22 each:
Darkling – limit 6 bottles per person
Coffee Darkling aged with coffee beans – limit 3 bottles per person
Maple Cinnamon Darkling aged with maple syrup and cinnamon. – limit 3 bottles per person
10% discount if you go for the full case allotment (12 bottles / $237)
In addition, we’re prepping a few unique kegs that have been flavored with experimental ingredients – we’ll be tapping these one-of-a-kind kegs throughout the day at the release party.
Finally, we’ll also be selling a limited number of Darkling glasses ($8 or $4 with a Darkling pour) and t-shirts ($20).
** Availability **
Bottled and draft versions of Darkling will be available in limited amounts. We will be updating social media and our website as the day goes on with updates about the amount of each beer we have left. Our team will be answering questions as fast as we can! Thanks for your excitement and patience.
In the event that there is a line to get into the Taproom, we will be hustling to let folks enter as our legal capacity allows (because we’re stoked you’re here!) Staff members will be able to give a rough estimate of the wait time, and we’ll monitor social media for any questions about the length of the wait. Our hall pass system WILL NOT be in effect for this day – apologies!
